Kofax has become the latest capture vendor to add ERP-based invoice workflow to its invoice capture portfolio, with the recent acquisition of 170 Systems. 170 Systems seems to compete with Ebydos, which ReadSoft bought a number of years back and which really helped catapult the Swedish document capture specialist into a leadership role in the market for SAP-based invoice capture. As Kofax moves upstream, it certainly want to challenge ReadSoft and Open Text, which had a workflow product and bought a capture company last year. Capture specialist BancTec also announced a new workflow partner for invoice capture recently.
Also, Kofax recently reported its fiscal 2009 year-end (June 30) results. They came in with the revised expectations.
